My lips giving you sleepless nights. Thank you @maccosmetics for this killer color and to that makeup artist. Ama [sic] get me 3 of these.” Ugandan born model Aamito Lagum on her instagram

We don’t feed (or direct you to) the trolls here at ThandieKay, we prefer to encourage who and what we love, fuelling the positive rather than echoing the negative so I’m choosing the positive thing about the clickbating storm in an IG cup over Aamito’s beautifully posted pout at the Ohne Titel AW16 in NYC last week. That’s as much as I’ll mention about that-I’m busy being FAR too inspired by this lip colour,  M.A.C.  Matte Royal

Who’d have thought that lips of deep purple-blue could ever look so freakin’ fabulous?

Proving that the beauty force is with her, Kenyan-born actress Lupita Nyong’o rocked – and we mean seriously rocked – what her fearless make-up artist, Nick Barose, described as “metallic galactic blue lips” at the UK premiere of Star Wars.

Lupita is no stranger to bold and modern looks on the red carpet (here I talked about her emerald-green eyes for BAFTA awards 2014).

And not straight from the bullet…

This chromed-shade was a creative concoction that Nick had uniquely mastered himself.

I got the low down from Nick that night as I was there working on Star Wars star Daisy Ridley so look out for an interview Q&A with Nick we’ll be posting soon. He shares… the secrets to blue lips and other make-up tricks.

Blue lips are statement making…

…to say the least. Positively Scene-stealing.

If you fancy being bold and trying M.A.C. Matte Royal, it has a strong purple hue coupled with cool undertones and a satin finish.mac royal romance lipstick thandiekay.com
